Ars perfecta: Toward perfection in musical performance?

British Journal of Aesthetics 46 (2):111-132 (2006)
Is there such a thing as the perfect performance of a musical work? It is the thesis of this paper that there is not. The thesis is advanced as the implication or concomitant of an already developed view of musical performance in the Western tradition, outlined in my book, Authenticities (1995).
